Dear Mr. Ervin,

The Objet Studio application calculates the volume of material and support.

This is a short calculation process and takes few seconds (not more than
half a minute in real complicate parts).

In the future, once the amount of material in the cartridge is not
sufficient for completing the build, the Objet Quadra or Objet Quadra Tempo
shall give the user a target time when to replace the relevant material
cartridge. This is still under R&D.

Should you need any additional information about the Objet Polyjet
Technology, please contact us.

Best regards

The Objet software calculates the build time and material usage before the
build starts. This is the method I use for quoting purposes. You can setup
a build tray and then click the estimate consumption button. If there is
not enough resin in your machine you can switch bottles during the build.

going through extensive calculation time? How can you be sure there is
enough material in your printer to finish a build?
